Pink & Orange Birthday

Hi, it's day 2 of the school holidays here and I'm enjoying avoiding my list of jobs!!
I will get to it, maybe tomorrow!

 I was inspired to make this card by the challenge at 
Just Add Ink where they have this gorgeous pic as the theme.

I stamped and embossed 2 flowers on watercolor paper and coloured them with tombows
and an aqua pen. I fussy cut them, shaped them with a stylus and layered them together for dimension.

The challenge at AAA Cards is to use fussy cutting.

The leaves and border and Memory Box dies, I coloured these with distress inks.

The challenge at Cuttlebug Mania is anything diecut,
and to use a manual machine like a Big Shot, or Cuttlebug.

Dies: Memory Box Lorelai Leaf and Tessatina Border.
Stamp: Designs by Ryn African Daisy
Other: orchid ink & clear embossing powder; tombows; distress ink; watercolor paper; sentiment sticker.

Thanks for visiting,
Cathy x

Cathy, this is stunning! Such a pretty interpretation of the JAI challenge. Love the pops of colour and use of white space.
